Hello dear 49 and Market fans and friends. I’m still in summer mood, so I’m continuing with my summer creations for you! This time I decided to use the gorgeous Island Paradise papers and laser cuts. I love this collection! It is full of gorgeous, soft summer colors and the illustrations are so amazing! So I wanted to do a home decor piece, so I can decorate my home with it in these beautiful summer months.
I used mdf base in the shape of a seashell and I traced it onto a paper from the Island Paradise collection. I then cut it out and attached it onto a mdf base with Finnabair soft gel. I covered the paper with clear gesso on top to seal it and give it some protection. I then used some Island Paradise laser cut shapes and built a composition around the main element on the background paper – a beautiful boat on the sea. I also added some Archival Chipboard pieces from “Never Stop Exploring” and some beautiful flowers from Vintage Shades Potpourri in blue.
I decided to add some real seashells to the composition to make it more interesting. Some of the elements have a 3d foam at the back, so that they pop out, which adds dimension and interest to the whole piece.
At the end I added some art stones and mini art stones with soft gel and some splashes with heavily diluted white acrylic paint and a brush.

I love how this home decor piece came out and I hope you’ll like it too!
Thank you for taking time to stop by. Enjoy your days and see you back soon!
